welcome to another Random Thursday with a fantastic topic. Lin, Em and I are happy that you are a part of it. Thanks for reading and commenting and posting!
I hope you are having a fantastic week and are all doing great!
I love snacking. Probably a bit too much. I try to eat as healthy as I can but sometimes you just need something not so healthy when you sit on the couch, read a book or watch a movie. That is when I need my snacks....
The fun part is that I did not even eat marshmallows before I went vegetarian and later vegan. I never cared about them very much but I am craving them since I went vegan. Em sent me these as a surprise (thanks again) and I love them so much. I could eat them every single day because they are just so yummy and fluffy.
I am also a huge fan of gummi bears. Thankfully you can get lots of vegan options right now. The "mean" thing is that they usually come in huge bags which means that I can't stop eating before the bag is empty.
Salt & vinegar chips.
Swedish "Punsch rullar"
A very delicious bright green deliciousness which is made of marzipan, oatmeal, dark chocolate and rum. Pretty heavy stuff but so good.
All kinds of nuts.
Pecans, walnuts, cashews, peanuts, almonds, macadamia...whatever. They are great when you are on the go plus really healthy so you can only win I guess.
Honestly, who does not like chocolate? Do you know somebody who does not eat chocolate. I don't.
Fruit bowl with yogurt, coconut flakes, raisins, walnuts and chocolate syrup.
That is my go-to dessert, I probably eat it at least 4 times a week. It is so good, yummy and kind of healthy. At least that is what I tell myself. Well, maybe when you skip the chocolate syrup. You can use all kinds of fruits but I prefer bananas or mandarin oranges.
Pudding reminds me of my childhood. I am a huge fan of the pudding "skin". I know lots of people hate it but I always use huge bowls when I cook pudding because I want to have as much skin as possible. It also tastes delicious when you add some cookies when you cook the pudding. Just saying....
Oh marzipan...I love you. Most marzipan is vegan anyway (almonds and sugar!) but I always check the ingredients list. Marzipan is also great for baking. And covered with chocolate.
You can find my recipe here. They are really easy to make and also great when you are on the go. You can also eat them with some spread like a vegan Nutalla version. That's how I prefer them. Which brings me to this....
This one is my favorite. It is so good that I love to eat it with a spoon. Probably not the healthiest thing to do but definitely something that makes you happy.
As you can see: I like to snack! Now I am curious...what is your favorite snack food? Please share with us!
